A Broadway depiction of former President Bill Clinton and former First Lady Hillary Clintonwill be ending its run early due to underwhelming ticket sales.
The production of "Hillary and Clinton" was scheduled to close July 21, but producer Scott Rudin announced Monday that its final performance will be held Sunday. June 23. The play cost $4.2 million to produce and accumulated only $4.7 million at the box office, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The show, titled "Hillary and Clinton," takes place in March 2008 and offers a fictional behind-the-scenes look at the former secretary of state's first presidential campaign as then-Senator Barack Obama began gaining momentum. The play stars Tony winners Laurie Metcalf as the Democratic candidate and John Lithgow as former President Bill Clinton...
The early curtain call comes after Hillary and Bill's national tour also struggled to find an audience this year, with some tickets for the 13-city event selling at more than 50 percent off.
It appears that the American people have finally had enough of the Clintons. Perhaps this time they'll finally take their cues and exit the stage.
